Nice restaurant in an old 1800's bank, which was pretty cool. Had the salmon spread as an appetizer. It was very good. Not very fishy and just a hint of smoky flavor on rice crackers. I wanted something local so I went with the Locally-caught Steelhead on ginger rice. It was very good- not strong and well textured. Overall, very... More

Great place to go for happy hour! Staff was soooooo nice and helpful guiding me through what was gluten free and still on happy hour...... what?! Yes no extra charge for the gluten free food so we tried almost everything on the menu. It was all delicious! Have gone back several times through the holidays, time to visit again!

We mis-timed our visit and had to wait for nearly an hour. As usual, it was worth it. We "grazed" off of the Happy Hour menu and enjoyed Fish & Chips, meat candy, soup de jour, Onion Rings (worth capitalization 'cause they are among the best I've ever had) sweet potato fries, and a grilled cheese sandwich.

Perfect spot for a quick bite all day! Delicious Mac n Cheese, Amazing Sweet Potato Fries & other special items. Beautiful decor and great service. I definitely want to try the main menu next time I'm in Tacoma.

My daughter in law and I went there for lunch one day to check out the lunch special in the bar. I am disabled and cannot set at bar counters. There were one table in the bar area that was open, asked the hostess if we can sit there. Her response was "yes, you will not be able to use... More

I went here twice in December for two different meals, brunch with mom and dinner with the spouse. Both meals were spectacular. This wasn't my first time at this restaurant, and the consistently excellent food and attentive service is the reason why I keep coming back. The Boozy Brunch is a menu brunch, not a buffet, and constantly changes to... More

I like the setting at the bar for just 2. The lighting, great bartender, overall beautiful atmosphere in this classic building is wonderful. Great wine selection. Dinner was amazing. I had the grilled salmon (not overcooked-perfect!) & would recommend that if you don't care for beef (hubs choice). A very nice menu selection is offered. The cassoulet looked scrumptious as...

Enjoyed our time at the Pacific Grill. Service is great we were never rushed. Food – appetizers - salad – entrées - Desert all very good. To complaints that are minor but still affected and kept it from being a five star. 1. It may just be me, but if I'm paying $170 for dinner then don't charge me for... More
